Gus was the first friend I met in Saskatoon. He allowed me to camp at his place until I found a place. He was kind and I introduce d him to my brothers and sisters. He always was a good friend to the Ross family and he was willing to help out whenever we needed help. May God Bless him when he arrives in heaven.

Going to miss Gus......I have known him for so many years and he has always extended kindness and protectiveness . In the past couple years he came to SICC events and charmed the ladies by giving handmade bracelets......for beautiful ladies he said then proceeded to help clean the hall and organize the food. He came to the feasts and helped us pray. We all knew him with his super long selfie stick in which he recorded almost the whole round dance. Rest in Peace Gus Lonechild and say hi to my mom as she went home on the 14th of August.
